Faculty Positions

The Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, invites applications for faculty positions starting July 1, 2020 or on a mutually agreeable date thereafter.

The Department is a world leader in the generation, control and application of nuclear reactions and radiation for the benefit of society and the environment. NSE faculty educate and conduct research in fields from fundamental nuclear science to practical applications of nuclear technology in energy, security and quantum engineering. We are seeking exceptional candidates broadly engaged in these areas. All candidates who demonstrate excellence in the multidisciplinary landscape of the department’s research and education areas will be considered. These areas include, but are not limited to: advanced modeling, simulation, and theory of complex nuclear systems; integrated design for nuclear fission energy systems; advanced thermal hydraulics; radiation sources and technology; nuclear security; plasma physics and fusion engineering; materials for extreme environments; and quantum computing, engineering and control. See http://web.mit.edu/nse/. Appointments are expected to be at the assistant or untenured associate professor level. Under special circumstances, a highly qualified candidate may be considered for a senior faculty appointment in the nuclear security area and would be appointed as the Frank Stanton Professor of Nuclear Security.

We welcome applications from a wide range of disciplines, including nuclear engineering, physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanical engineering, computational science and engineering, environmental engineering, and electrical engineering. However, a commitment to excel in teaching in the Department is essential. Faculty duties will include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, research, and supervision of graduate students. Applicants must have a doctorate in Engineering or Scientific field relevant to research in the Department by the beginning of employment, and must have demonstrated excellence in research and scholarship in a relevant technical field.

Applications are being accepted electronically at http://nse-search.mit.edu/. Each application must include: a curriculum vitae, the names and addresses of three or more references, a two-page strategic statement of research interests, a one-page statement of teaching interests, and electronic copies of no more than three representative publications. Each candidate must also arrange for three or more reference letters to be uploaded electronically.

Recognizing MIT’s strong commitment to diversity in education, research and practice, minorities and women are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications received before January 31, 2020 will be given priority.

MIT is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
